The murder Movie Review

By ApunKaChoice Bureau
Rating: 3/5

Suddenly Bollywood seems to have been swept by a wave of stories about adultery and promiscuity. Anurag Basu's 'Murder' is not much different from what can be expected from such a story. A wife seeks sexual satisfaction outside her marriage when her life with her husband begins to dry up.

The film begins with a picture perfect image off a small family of Sudhir [Ashmit Patel], his wife Simran [Mallika Sherawat] and their son Kabir. They are settled in Bangkok where Sudhir is completely engrossed in his business. As Sudhir goes about chasing his dream of making it big in the corporate world, his wife Simran begins to feel ignored. Her life is turning drab and passing each day is becoming a matter of killing time.

One day Simran bumps into her ex-boyfriend Sunny [Emraan Hashmi]. A rainy encounter with a beau from yesteryears only brings back memories of the past when Simran and Sunny were in love but could not get married. Then, they had each other. Now, they both are lonely.

Together alone, Sunny and Simran are inevitably drawn towards each other. The flame of passion that had been doused a long time back suddenly ignites again and the two cannot control crossing the forbidden limits. With their adultery consummated, a wedge appears in Simran's feelings for her husband.

Meanwhile, Sudhir is not a fool to not see the change in his wife's behavior. He begins to sense that she is hiding something from him. So he hires a detective to spy on Simran. And the revelations of the detective only bring forth the ugly truth about Simran's infidelity. Sudhir is simply shattered.

He had been working hard to give a better life to his wife and son, but what use of such earnings when wife feels neglected and goes about sleeping with someone else. Ultimately, Sudhir decides to confront Sunny. But this meeting will change the course of entire story...

As expected, 'Murder' has plenty of skin-show and blatant display of steamy scenes, courtesy the bold newcomer Mallika Sherawat. Since the movie looks at extra-marital relationships from a slightly realistic point of view, such scenes do not appear sleazy and cheap. Rather, an attempt to has been made by director Anurag Basu to add some aesthetic beauty to such scenes.

And contrary to what many might expect, Mallika knows more than just to flaunt her body. The young girl deserves credit for her acting in the movie. She is convincing in bringing forth the inner dilemma of an adulterous wife.

Particularly in the scene when she is thinking of her boyfriend during her train ride back home, the lissome actress is able to bring about myriad (and some even contradictory) emotions simultaneously. She's excited at having met her old buddy, but she's afraid of her disloyalty to her husband. She feels longing for her boyfriend but she also feels guilty. She's simultaneously weepy, her hands fluttering to her flushed face, wiping away tears.

Performances by the movie's two main male leads are just about average.

'Murder' begins at a slow pace in the first half but gathers momentum as the story begins to unfold. And just about the interval point when it appears that the story is almost over and that there is hardly any juice left in it - boom! there comes a sudden twist in the tale. And by the time the film reaches its climax, the viewer is surprised as the sequence of events unravels.

In a nutshell, 'Murder' is visually exciting and sexually enticing.
